Remote object && Serializable object

In HFE pg73, it reads that arguments and return values for a remote method must be one of these:
1. primitives
2. serializable objects
3. an array or collection of primitives or serializable objects
4. a remote object
And we know that in 4, a remote object is basically a stub to the remote object, so is a stub a serilizable object? If not, what makes it different from other non-serializable objects as such that a stub can be the arguments and return values of a remote method call and others cannot.

I think stub is serialized object because it can be sent via network...
Correct me if i am wrong...
